It had something to do with the rain leeching loamy dirt
And the way the back lane came alive, half moon whispered "go"
For a while, I heard you missing steps in the street
And your anger pleading in an uncertain key
Singing the sound of you that you found for me

When the winter took the tips of my ears
Found this noisy home full of pigeons and places to hide
And when the voices die, I emerged to watched abandoned machines
Waiting for their men to return, I remember the way
I would wait for you to arrive with kibble and a box full of beer
How I'd scratch the empties desperate to hear
You make the sound that you found for me

After scrapping with the ferals and the tabby,
Let you brush my matted fur
How I'd knead into your chest while you were sleeping
Shallow breathing made me purr

But I can't remember the sound that you found for me
I can't remember the sound that you found for me
I can't remember the sound

I stopped believing in a lot of things when Cloud went missing. I couldn't really find much in a world that would take my cat away from while some guy who likely superglued his girlfriend to a toilet for two years won the lottery twice. I couldn't fathom how that was even remotely fair. I know I've done some bad things, but if karma decided to put Cloud in danger for that... that would just be too much. He didn't do anything.

Heather found him today. He ended up at her parent's house somehow. He looks like shit-- he now weighs 4.5 pounds (as opposed to his former fifteen), has a scar running up his entire left side, sores on his paws, and lost his two bottom incisors. But he's alive.

He's not quite eating solid food. The litter box isn't even something we're looking at right now as he can hardly walk across the room. But he's alive and home.

We took him to the vet as soon as we got him back. Tonight Christian, Jo, and I will be watching him shifts until we take him back to the vet tomorrow to make sure he's doing alright and run some more tests to make sure he's healthy.

But he's home.

God, I fucking missed him so much.

That song was beautiful. It made me tear up a little. I am so glad for you that you have your baby back. My thoughts dwell on my wishes for him to recover and be well for you.

It's called Virtute the Cat Explains Her Absence by The Weakerthans.

He seems like he's doing okay. We wont know until Friday for sure though.
